+ Jason's Comments

This plugin “Spam Free WordPress” adds a required password click before permitting a user to make comment. Use this as a more user friendly alternative to answering a quiz or decoding a captcha image.

For login security I recommended combining “SI CAPTCHA Anti-Spam” to add a captcha image for added security on the login page together with “Wordfence Security” to limit login attempts or an alternative dedicated plugin called “limit login attempts“.

For custom form security I recommend “Contact Form 7” with a Quiz field and a Captcha image using “Really Simple CAPTCHA“.
